(a) Schematic of the unipolar switching in SiOx, showing the typical set (red) and reset (blue) I-V curves (9). (b) Schematic of the SiOx thin-walled structure for in situ TEM imaging. The switching region in SiOx is localized by the nanogap generated in the α-C layer and imaged by TEM. (c) and (d) Schematics of…
